ABC will be paying tribute to one of the biggest music names in history with a two-hour television event dedicated to his life and legacy.

The special, which comes ahead of the 10th anniversary of the icon's death, will unpack everything from his childhood to the comeback concert, "This is It," that he never got to perform. It will also feature never-before-seen interviews he did with Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer, as well as conversations with his friends and family.

The Last Days of Michael Jackson will air on Thursday, May 24 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
